Loans for small and medium sized business are available from today - with loans offered at 0% interest. 
 
According to the Swiss Bankers’ association, a number of banks have registered to participate in the programme. 
 
It's hoped applications will be processed quickly - around 30 minutes for a loan of up to CHF 500,000.
 
For larger amounts, more extensive reviews would take more time.
